Owner | Baker
Patrick, a native son of Albemarle County, first found his inspiration where most cooks do—at home.
Patrick grew up in a farmhouse in North Garden where family meals and fresh ingredients from the garden shaped his childhood.
His culinary journey has taken him to New York, Spain, and now back home to Charlottesville.
Hilary Salmon developed a love of baking from her German mother.
Formerly part of the front-of-house team at the New Jersey bakery, Choc O Pain, Hilary showed an interest in and a talent for pastries. So she moved to the kitchen, where she became Patrick’s right-hand woman.
Growing up in California wine country with a chef for a mother and a farmer for a father, Will was taught early the importance of quality food and the value of time spent at the dinner table.
Will moved to Charlottesville from California for new adventures and is enjoying his return to the culinary world.
